0 326

Riding cable car to beat traffic? Why not.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) revealed that it has revived discussions on building a cable car system to ease traffic congestion in the metro.

“We are finalizing certain details. Hopefully, I would be able to convince proponents,” Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade said.

He said he is also looking for ways how to make the fare of the cable car system reasonable and affordable to the riding public.

“I don’t want a rate that is high so that, you know, the public can benefit,” he said.

When Tugade assumed his post, he brought up the idea of using cable car system to address traffic woes citing the country Bolivia.

We are excited to see this idea turn into a reality, sir!
